To be quite honest , I beileve they would have been nobetter or worse ....

I dont thin it would have made an expansion team any better during the life of their respective contracts.
They had to build talent and depth at other positions to be competetive.
Yes they would've been better
1. They would've had a chance to get a QB in the 20003-2004 draft that would've put his profession that paid him millions for 9 months worth of work 1st. Palmer/Eli Manning and Peppers, instead of Davey.
2. They wouldn't have been living the fantasy that Mario was what he was supposed to be.
It is what it is, but the decision to draft Davey set this org back 7-8 yrs. Hell, BoB was so in love with Davey, Gary had to lie to BoB to get his 1st HC job. I guess sometimes lying does pay. Not that I blame Gary, if I was in his shoes I would've told BoB what he wanted to hear.
